We had Arthur come over today to finall install the attic fan on the lanai roof. This, to keep the new storage crawl space in the lanai ceiling cooler so storage items will weather the heat better. Beyond storage items, I put the Vivint system WiFi range extender in that space so the Vivint camera in the alleyway… Continue Reading “Attic Fan Install”
What a long story from thought origin to end decision on storage sheds. Typical of Lou and me though… how did we go from floor buffer to storage sheds?
It started out a discussion with Lou about buying a floor buffer so that I can scrub and completely clean the lanai and garage deck. Ahh, where to store the … Continue Reading “Storage space expansion”
Lou and I (finally) got invited over to Justin’s and Rachelle’s place. He bought a house in Ewa Gentry Tuscany II subdivision. Seems like a cozy place, tho in a very tight yard/lot. But… that’s par for the course here in Hawaii.
Mom has been wanting to have sidewalks built on both sides of her house, especially since grass on each side doesn’t grow well (not enough sunlight underneath the overhang). Today Tony Galang (Arthur’s brother) and his crew came over to start the prep and initial digging. I had to go over with boltcutters… Continue Reading “Mom’s house project”
Our main garage entrance lip has been cracking and chipping away over the years because the rebars inside the concrete are rusting. Personally, I think it’s part of the whole Haseko lawsuit thing where all their first phase development homes are showing foundation cracks because of rusting metal bars and … Continue Reading “Had to do some house repairs”
New Year present of sorts. The solar water heater piping from the garage to the house busted, and for two weeks we had to go out to the garage to turn on hot water and then turn off when done. Had to get the piping replaced and re-run to the house… what a royal pain in the @$$…
Yep, babygirl is finally driving now. As all three kids have grown up, learning to drive and actually getting on the road has been the rite of passage to independence. As it is for all teens.
We went shopping for a car for Lina. Originally, I thought about a used car no more than 2-3 years old, maybe a Camry or Corolla.… Continue Reading “Okay, Lina’s driving now”
Peaches moved into her new house in the Ewa Sunrise complex and we helped her get it into shape… painting, putting up shelving in the closets, etc.. It was a 2-3 day affair, but an all family affair at that. Lou pretty much spearheaded the painting with all of us helping and taking direction from her. I did… Continue Reading “Peaches Bought Her House”
We’d been talking about extending the back porch into a small lanai for some time now, because it just wasn’t enough room from the rain when we smoke. As the contemplating went on, I also decided I need a 3rd car garage to get my truck off the street. Initial thoughts were just a concrete carport slab… Continue Reading “Built Out the Lanai and Garage Extension”
